###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

###PPB###

On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, at 10:17 p.m., East Precinct officers responded to the intersection of Southeast 138th Avenue and Southeast Division Street on the report that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle.

When officers and emergency medical personnel arrived at the crash scene they located a deceased adult female on the roadway. Members of the Portland Police Bureau Traffic Division's Major Crash Team responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.

Based on the initial investigation, officers believe the pedestrian was walking south across Southeast Division Street when she was struck by a vehicle being driven west on Southeast Division Street. Shortly afterwards the woman was struck by a second vehicle that was also traveling westbound on Southeast Division Street. The driver of the first vehicle that struck the victim drove away from the scene. The driver of the second vehicle remained at the scene.

Officers searched the area, but at this time have not located the driver or vehicle that was believed to have first struck the pedestrian. The driver of the second vehicle was taken into custody. The driver of the second vehicle involved in this crash has been identified as 42-year-old Brent A. Klausner.

During the investigation, officers closed Southeast Division Street between Southeast 136th Avenue and Southeast 139th Avenue. While officers were investigating the crash, a driver traveled around the road closure and into the crime scene, narrowly missing a Major Crash Team investigator. Officers stopped the driver and took him into custody. The driver of the vehicle that almost struck a police officer was identified as 31-year-old Angel G. Cardona-Aguilar.

Klausner and Cardinia-Aguilar were both lodged at the Multnomah County Jail and have since been released from custody. Klausner was booked on charges of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants and Reckless Driving. Cardona-Aguilar was booked on charges of Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants, Reckless Driving, and Reckless Endangering.

This is the 26th traffic crash fatality investigated by the Major Crash Team in Portland in 2018.

The identity of the deceased person will be released after a member of the Oregon State Medical Examiner's Office performs an autopsy and next of kin are notified.

Additional information will be provided regarding this investigation as more information is learned and release of the information is determined to be in the best interest of this on-going investigation.

Anyone with information about this investigation should contact Portland Police Bureau Traffic Division Officer David Enz at 503-823-2208 or David.Enz@portlandoregon.gov
